John D. Rockefeller's long and trying ordeal on the witness stand may end to-day. It Is nearly a week since the presi dent of the Standard Oil Co volun tarily went on the stand as' a wit ness for the defense in the govern ment's suit to dissolve the great cor poration of which he is the head. For two days his task was compara tively easy. Under the kindly guid ance ot. his counsel Mr Rockefeller told in most entertaining manner his story of the growth of his company. Then came the cross-examiner, Frank B. Kellogg, and with him a change in the demeanor ot the wit ness. Mr Kellogg has been engaged almost constantly for more than a year on the present suit and his fa miliarity with many details of the great business has been known to be equal almost to that of Mr Rocke feller. Under the galling cross Are of questions Mr Rockefeyer has han dled himself with the most extreme caution and when in doubt as to whether he should answer a ques tion, invariably has awaited the ad vice of his . counsel before making reply. New York, Nov 24. John D. Rockefeller testified In the govern ments' suit against the Standard 01) Co to-day that at the tinie of the or ganisation of the Standard Oil Co of New Jersey in 1889 he owned 256, 854 shares of its stock out of a total stock issue of 983,383 shares. For the first time since he has been on the witness stand at this heating Mr Rockefeller was a little late to day. Frank B. Kellogg, the govern ment's special assistant attorney gen eral resume his cross examination taking up the organization of the Standard Oil Co of New Jersey where he eDded Jt yesterday. Mr Kellogg read what he said was a list of stocks, obtained by that companyln 1899 for which it had exchanged its owns shares. He said that 442,797 out of a total of 983,383 share first Issued were In the name of John D. Rockefeller. Mr Rockefelled said he djd not own so much stock as that but did own 256,854 shares of the Standard" Oil Co of New Jersey at that t.lme.anl that he accepted the other stock and distributed it to the proper stockholders. He added that frequently holders of certificates of the Standard Oil trust exchanged them for stock in the Standard Oil Co of New Jersey rather than accept shares of the various subsidy com panies. ' The ctoss-examlnation of Mi Rockefeller was concluded shortly after the opening of the afrtenoon session. Attorney John Milburn, counsel for the Oil Co, then began his re-direct examination.

A . - .: '' There seems to be occasion for lots of expense ahead for many of the li quor dealers in. the city for to-day when they approached the county commissioners with tbe amount of the license vfee and incidental ex penses many of them were confronted with written remonstrances. The prohibition party Is the remonstrant, represented by Ernest A. Smith of 27 Waterville street., Mr Smith Is a young man who wears spectacles Is of sandy complexion, with a closely cut chin beard. At times be sat on the end of the table at which the county commissioners received tbe liquor dealers' money and at times he lean ed against the wall. He paid par ticular attention to tbe name of each applicant as It was called out by County Commissioner Walter and then after looking over his list of written remonstrances he placed one in the file of the application if there was one against that particular ap plicant in his lot. Sometimes the re monstrance was based on the appli cant having been convicted of hav ing violated liquor laws, sometimes It was because the saloon was connected with a restaurant or a billiard room. During Intervals when there was a chance to speak Smith and the com missioners would discuss some point of law relating to taking out licenses. Mr Smith seemed to know of one in stance where an applicant for a sa loon license represented to some one that he was Intending to take out a druggist's liquor license and the par ty signed the application, but when he found out later that it was a sa loon license he had signed for he wished to withdraw his name. Mr Smith asked the commissioners if a party signing under these circum stances could withdraw his name and he was Informed that on the face of things such a signature could not be withdrawn, as for instance, said one commissioner, a party could hardly withdraw his signature to one's note. At noon Mr Smith had filed remon strances against the following being granted a renewal of their licenses: Frank Matesavage, 776 Bank street, unsultability of place and applicant having been convicted of violating the liquor laws; Thomas Fitzgerald, 173 Hamilton avenue, objection to place, owner having been fined; Sa rah A. Horlgan, 872 Bank street, fin ed; John Mlljerick,- Bishop street, premises too near a church; Michael J. Sayles, Bishop street, premises too near a church; Adolph Sandltz, 77 East Main street, premises too near a church; Edward B. McEvoy, 150 East Main street, place unsuitable; Mau rice McCarthy, 488 South Main street, place unsuitable, near a school house; Felio Lachapelle, place un suitable; Timothy d'Rourke, Scovlll street, place unsuitable, near a school building; Thomas Kane, Cole street, place unsuitable, near a school build ing; John H. Dunpny, 38 Wolcott street, place unsuitable, near a church building; Anna Dawson, Third street, place unsuitable, too near a school building; James T. Burns, Waterville, place unsuitable, near the postofflce; William H. Bor chardt, 7 West Porter street, prem ises too near a church building; Cor nelius McCarthy, Meadow street, place unsuitable; George Hauser, Grand street, place unsuitable; Thomas E. Guest, 95 South Main street, place unsuitable,, connected With a restaurant; John J. Murphy, 159 Bank street, same reason; Tim othy J. Brennan, East Main street, same cause; M. J. McEvoy, Exchange place, same reason; James A. Dug gan. East Main street, place unsuit able. There are various rumors In circu lation concerning this matter. The county commissioners say that simi lar action has been taken by the pro hibition party In New Haven and that it will be late next spring before they get through with tbe hearings on the remonstrances filed there This would take the hearings on the local situation into next fall. There were no remonstrances filed thlsafternoon and Mr Smith did not materialize. James A. Duggan, East Main street, got ahead of the remon strant, getting his receipt for his money early in the forenoon before Mr Smith persented himself, though he was not aware at that time that a remonstrance was in store against him. Mr Smith was active on the cold water side of the last campaign, apeparing with "Scoop" O'Brien at the local rallies of the prohibition party on Grand street.

SOME BADLY INJURED Another serious trolley accident In which almost a dozen persons were Injured occurred on the Waterville line this morning shortly before 7 o'clock. The smash-up took place on the upper end of the Faber switch, the persons Injured being employes of the Waterville Pin Co on their way to work. Three cars figured In the accident, two extras and the regular. Two of the young women in the ac cident are thought to be seriously in jured, while the others are suffering from minor Injuries. The accident caused the wildest excitement, oc curring as it did in the fog, and dur ing the mix up that followed girls were- trampled upon and thrown about in such a manner that it is surprising more were not badly hurt The most serious hurt are Miss Mary Daley of Wall avenue the well known singer, and Miss Josephine Reidy of Wall street. The former's spine is thought to be severely in jured while her body is a mass of bruises. Her head came in contact with the floor and it is feared that she may be hurt internally. Miss Reidy is suffering from R fracture of the right ankle, several severe bruises and has been so af fected by shock following the collis ion that her injuries prove worse than first expected. Miss Margaret Dwyer of 27 Ston'j street is suffering from bruises, as she was trampled upon by several men in their haste to reach the door. She is also suffering from shock. Mrs Patrick Guinan of 23 Stone street went to the floor with such force that several of her teeth were knocked out. She bled considerably from the mouth. One of her ribs was fractured and several severe con tusions were made on her body. James Tiernan of Baldwin street was also badly shaken up by the jar ring received and had to be removed to his home in Lunny's ambulance. Miss Daley and Miss Reidy also had to be carried to their homes in the ambulance. Miss Margaret Lynch of Hickory street had her left shoulder dislo cated and is suffering from shock. , 'Annie Murphy of 17 Stone street had her back hurt and the attending physician, Dr Dwyer, thinks she may be Injured Internally. Her body was considerably bruised. John Lawton of 735 Baldwin street had a rib. fractured. How the accident really happened has not been stated by the officials of the company, who are reticent about making statements. As far as it can be learned the cars that left Exchange place at 6:30 o'clock with the shop employes and the regular were the ones that figured in the smashup. As one of the cars was rounding the lower end of Faber's switch the pole came off. The motor man of the car following could not see far ahead of him because of the fog and crashed into the the first one before he could bring his car to a halt. But it was not the first crash that did the serious damage. It was the next crash which almost caused a panic. It is said that one of th cars had reached Waterville and was on its way back when it went slam bang into the two cars that were just getting untangled from the first acci dent. The second bump simply terri fied the passengers and those who were not thrown to the floor made a wild rush for the doors. Miss Dwyer of Stone street, one of the girls in the accident, said it was awful. She had a pair of glasses or. and some one stepped right on her face. The glasses were smashed, but none of the glass went into her eyes. She said the screaming was terrible In the cars and the fog was do dense that one could scarcely see what was HAVE YOU We show a larger line than ever of Bed Couches and Sofa Bedi.
